Becoming an Overcomer: Moving Beyond Setbacks in Life

Programme Synopsis/Outline

Why do some people bounce back from life difficulties while others crumble under adversity?  The individuals who thrive and bounce back from life difficulties, are using the skills of resilience.

Many individuals face various challenges, ranging from relationship problems, work stress, health issues and other setbacks or failures.   Hence, resilience, which is the ability to adapt well to adversity, tragedy or significant sources of stress, is critical to the emotional wellbeing, success and mental health of individuals.

The skills of resilience can be learned.  This interactive and experiential workshop aims to introduce participants to various strategies that can help develop resilience.  The following areas will be discussed:

•         What is resilience?

•         Why do some people bounce back from life difficulties? Why do others crumble under adversity?

•         What are my signature strengths?

•         How can I develop positive thought patterns?

•         Do “failures” define me?

How can I reframe negative events?
